despite sucking ass in starting topics, this thread has been very entertaining. It's nice to meet you guys btw.

At least this guy has a sense of humor.

To answer the OP's topic: I watch it on a rare occasion, but most of the time the J!/WOF hour cuts into it, so I don't get to see it as often. Plus I don't understand the appeal of TV Poker. I think it's more fun to play than to watch.

Unless it's Celebrity Poker Showdown. Now that's appointment TV for me... except Bravo would rather air Law & Order: Criminal Intent reruns instead.

Unfortunately, from all indications, it looks like "Celeb Poker Showdown" has gone out of production completely.  Phil Hellmuth, Jr. was the kiss of death on that show.

It was starting to get a little played out, but yeah, you'll notice that swapping that asshat in for Phil Gordon helped not one single bit.

If you read the rest of the thread, you would see that some of us do, and some of us don't.  Still, if you're looking for a discussion all about big name poker players, then yes, you're probably in the wrong place.  Sure, it's on GSN so it technically qualifies, but most of us prefer to discuss the more traditional game shows.  I'm sure there are plenty of poker discussion forums.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.
